Why choose antique dining chairs?

Antique dining chairs bring a unique style to your space. Renaissance artisans created antique dining chairs out of exotic wood to make them durable and strong, covering the seat using leather, velvet and silk to ensure maximum comfort. This dedication to detail and materials is just one of the reasons antique chairs remain so popular today.

During the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the larger families of the middle classes sparked a greater demand for dining chairs. Mahogany, walnut, rosewood, satinwood and oak dining chairs from the two periods are still available today and thanks to the impressive build quality of these items, they can be find a home in the dining rooms and kitchens of 21st century homes to add style, character and heritage.

There are a number of different styles of classic antique dining chairs which continue to prove popular. For example, Chippendale chairs, Queen Anne chairs, Victorian style chairs and Regency dining chairs remain some of the most sought after designs today.

Chippendale antique dining chairs are the ultimate in high-end luxury. The chairs were originally designed by Thomas Chippendale – a titan of the English design and furniture making industry. The Victorian-era dining chairs you will find here at Vinterior typically come in mahogany, although walnut and rosewood can also be used in creating an authentic Victorian parlour look.

Shabby chic or reupholstered antique dining chairs?

While the wooden frames of our Victorian dining chairs remain solid and durable – thanks in large part to the craftsmen who built them – it is inevitable that the upholstery has worn over time. If you are looking to invest in antique dining chairs, it is worth noting that these signs of use can help you to generate a cosy and classy shabby chic finish – a trend that is particularly popular right now. However, many of the pieces you will find here at Vinterior have been reupholstered by our trusted sellers, giving them a new lease of life and, in some cases, an eye-catching pop of colour.

A good quality antique dining chair does not have to be restricted to the dining table, of course. The statement quality of certain pieces can transcend interior themes and be used as accent chairs in other rooms.
